English Tea & Muffins

One of the most enjoyable things to do on a winter's afternoon in England is to visit a good Tea Room. Whether it's cake or biscuits, a tray bake perhaps or a delicious muffin like the one in the photo, afternoon tea is thankfully a British tradition that is still alive.

And if you long for some homemade muffins, there are lots of muffin recipes on the web. If you don't like muffins but prefer chocolate ... well, again there are some great chocolate dessert recipes you can try. So if your local Tea Room is closed any time, you can stay home and keep your spirits up with a 'Homemade Afternoon Tea'.
